Duluth Community Garden Program
The Duluth Community Garden Program (DCGP) is a non-profit organization, started in 1977 by neighborhood organizers who created a few gardens on vacant lots in Duluth’s Central Hillside neighborhood. It’s mission is to make gardening as financially and physically accessible as possible for all Duluthians. Today DCGP stewards 21 community garden sites with over 270 garden plots that are organically gardened by over 200 families. DCGP rents out garden plots on a sliding fee scale based on self-reported income.
Workshops, garden tours, and events are just a few of the other ways the DCGP works to “cultivate healthy neighborhoods by providing access to land, resources, and community.”
